Antonio Conte survived an early season slump with Chelsea to push the Blues to the top of the Premier League.
It all started with a 13-game winning streak from October which ended in January, and Chelsea have been comfortably ahead of the park ever since.
Blues legend Frank Lampard believes Conte has the attributes to build a dynasty at Chelsea.
“Could he [Conte] build a dynasty? He has definitely got the attributes, so you would look at him now and say yes — but who knows what the future holds?” Lampard told the London Evening Standard.
“It depends on how he feels, how the club feels and how the future pans out.
“I am very happy with him and if he carries on the way he is, he will stay there for a long time.
“We hope that will happen. What he is doing at the moment is fantastic. It is very hard to look too far forward in football, but what he is doing is a great thing for the club because last year there was a lot of negative talk and he changed that very quickly. Long may it continue.
“I don’t like to tempt fate because I am a Chelsea man, but I can’t see them being caught with the gap they have and the way they are playing.”
